My husband and I got our first foster dog today. He's a total delight so far! He's a year old (Remy is his name), and I'm told he's a pit bull, but I think he looks like a pit bull/black lab mix. I don't think his previous owners took very good care of him. He is skinnier than I think he should be, his nails are so long that it looks like it's painful for him, he smells like urine, and he had terrible dandruff when he got here. I gave him a bath, but he still stinks, so I'm going to take him to Petco to have him groomed. He's getting along beautifully with Bella. He was a little shy at first, but now he's warming up to her. He's definitely submissive - Bella runs this show and loves having a boyfriend she can boss around! He's just such a sweet dog. I'm sure it won't be hard to find him a home!

















Bella being the boss:






Aren't they adorable??


Bella teases him with her toy...such a brat!




"You can't catch me!"

Lol, Bella she's such a ham!!!

He's a cutie. That's great that he's fitting in so well. I'm sure after you have him for a while he'll look like a new dog!

Doesn't make you wonder why some people even bother to get a dog in the first place?

Because Bella is so lovey dovey with other dogs and is fine with other dogs and people on "her" property and because Remy is the epitome of submissive, we just introduced them in our backyard. Had Bella been a little more iffy with other dogs or Remy been even a little bit dominant, we would have introduced them at a park by our house.

It sure does! Remy is just so sweet that I can't imagine how anyone could neglect him.

Beatiful foster you have. I also think he's black lab mix, he has the body and his snout is sort of shaped like a labs but his head and eyes are more pit bull terrier. I always look at Pit Bull Terriers eyes as a signature of there breed, there different then regular dogs. But I love em'! There eyes only a bully dog could own :D

I agree. He has nice rose ears and beautiful almond-shaped bully breed eyes. Whatever he is, he's a doll!

He is such a cutie!! I bet Bella is so excited to have a play mate. Fostering is an awesome thing to do. I personal don't think I would be a good candidate because I would never want them to leave!! Keep posting the pictures!!

YAY!!! Welcome to the world of fostering! :D He's a doll! Fair warning, though, the first one is really tough. With my first foster dog, I sobbed uncontrollably the first time I dropped her off at adoptions. They wouldn't let me stay with her. :cry: The group I work with now, if someone is trying to adopt a dog through us, we always let them stick around if they want. Who will you be working with to help place her?

I'm sure I'll be a wreck when he finds his forever home! I have a feeling that we may get so attached to him that we'll keep him. He's everything we've been looking for in a second dog, so we'll see!

We're working with Second Chance out of DeWitt County, Illinois to place him.

He is a real cutie. Just fyi, Brodie is also supposedly a lab/pit mix. I think the shape of face/head and body are VERY similar to Brodie, and Brodie is also on the slim side. His hind end particularly seems thin to me and always has, so I dont know but what that might be the way Remy is. Just my two cents. We have fattened Brodie up a little, but he just doesnt seem like he will bulk out much. Remy looks like a great dog! I hope you dont have to foster him long, so he can get on with his forever family :)
